Carrots on Steroids

This is a typical carrot in Japan. It's actually one of the smaller ones in the bag, which may be why it is the last one. ::snort::

It's hard to see in this photo but the carrots are FAT and often shorter than I was used to in TX. The typical price at my Farmer's Market is 3 or 4 of these for Y100.

Look at THIS carrot.

This was the thickness of an American carrot....but look at the length.

WOW. That is one long carrot! How much does that translate to in dollars?

The more I've thought about this, it looks as if he is holding a light saber. It would never do to have one or two of these with my grandsons! :-)

Cindy, the yen rate fluctuates. I alwways think 100/1 but it's NEVER been that good sice we get here.....it's 89/1 this week. SO...for 3 or 4 of the top photo in a bag it's around $1.10.

Wilma - I agree.
